Armando Gallo’s association with Genesis has been well documented but for those of you who might not be aware, Armando was born in Italy and sent to the UK as a young journalist to cover the swinging sixties. Armando enjoyed himself and kept coming back to the UK. He was sent to either review a Genesis gig or interview them for an Italian music paper and he became hooked with the music and he would go on to become great friends with each member of the band.
Armando’s specialist skills are photography and interviewing these are covered in this book, in this example of the book Armando commissioned Paul Whitehead to paint a Genesis style painting influenced by many themes connected to Genesis songs or ideas the author recounts this commission in high humour. This book also features the Pete Frame family tree and a discography amongst the story of Genesis retold in German.
ISBN information states a publication date for December 1978 which is entirely probable but it’s around 6 months after Genesis tour Germany.
